I found myself working after dark one night a few months ago and kept hearing something in the tree behind me. I kissed it off to a squirrel or opossum. When moonlight was no longer sufficient for my task, I retrieved a flashlight and for grins saw a nice Copperhead specimen, 4 ft, curling down the trunk to the leaves below. I tried to give chase (not sure what I would have done if I caught up... DOH!) but it was speedy and easily lost itself in a thicket of brush nearby.

 

When I think of snakes in trees, I think Python or BOA, but it turns out Copperheads love trees, especially at night.


Why am I all sweatty and late? Umm...

Well, thank heavens I don't do much night caching. Lol

I don't know *tick* what you're *tick* talking about.  :notme:  :crazy2:

 

I do have some baby rat jaws that I want to make a mold of and then cast in silver.  Seriously.  I just need my studio set up again and functional.  What would this one be?  Nutria?  The teeth were wicked.

Hmmmm, seems to like skulls, etc. Maybe time to check Google maps and see if there are any signs of fresh digging in your backyard. :dig:

They're not that bad.  You could probably even do them in a dress.  I'd leave the heels at home though.

CornDoll and I were in Wichita Falls doing the virtual cache by the falls/river, and we had finished and were walking back up the sidewalk toward where we had parked. A couple was walking down the hill on the sidewalk toward us. I guess they flushed a coyote out of the nearby brush with their presence, because all of a sudden this very large coyote came crashing out of the brush, ran straight down the hill and past us (about 20 feet from us), jumped across the falls area (he didn't clear it, but he knew just where to land), and ran up the hill on the other side of the falls. I've never seen one that close before. We all just looked at each other like "What the hell just happened?" The coyote is probably typing a log right now in a discussion thread called "Humans Seen While Trying to be Stealthy in the Wild" or something like that. Freaky stuff...

Last night I checked a place for a cache that I knew was way far off.  But just in case.  Glad I didn't stick my fingers in scouring for a nano before looking.  There were two in there.  Smaller diameter than a husky pencil - or maybe up to that size.  Cross beam of an electrical box.

A couple was walking down the hill on the sidewalk toward us. I guess they flushed a coyote out of the nearby brush with their presence, because all of a sudden this very large coyote came crashing out of the brush, ran straight down the hill and past us (about 20 feet from us), jumped across the falls area (he didn't clear it, but he knew just where to land), and ran up the hill on the other side of the falls.

The coyote is probably typing a log right now in a discussion thread called "Humans Seen While Trying to be Stealthy in the Wild" or something like that. Freaky stuff...

 

Had a coyote experience picking up the caches on the FOR series.  Really didn't realize they got so big.  This was around #3 or #4 and I got out and saw him.  He was staring at me, neither of us move for a minute.  He let me snap a good photo - well, 4 bad ones first then a good somewhat better one - and I went to get the cache.  As I got back in the Jeep he slowly took off.  When the door closed, he bolted to the woods but turned around and kept an eye on me. 

 

Just one I saw. Of course, I had my GeoDog with me.  I'm trying to point out the wild dog to her.  She was clueless -- until I took off.  THEN she sees it from far, far away.

This dead coyote was under the joshua tree near where we parked to walk to this cache today. GC1AF0T

It must have been recent - no smell or bloating yet.
